View Full Version : X800XL AGP trouble ?
Hi,I just got a X800XL AGP and ran Aquamark to see how it would do,My score was a bit over 51,000 GFX was 7,896 and CPU was 7,348,this over all score seems low and i expected better,this is my system.
1 gig of ddr3200
Is this score low or did i expect to much? I had a 9800pro and scored 42,000 so I thought i would get much higher. Thx for any input.

Seems a little low. Try using omega drivers, that might help some. Also, its set at 8x right?

Whats your CPU? Considering you're using the A7N8X board, I'm assuming it's a socket A Athlon XP. Unfourtanetly, I think it's bottlenecking your video card. For a card like that, you're gonna want a faster CPU to allow it to run full bore.
Yes,its set to 8x.I got 3DMark05 and got a score of 4650, cpu score was 3206.I looked at other scores and it seems like it did pretty good with this.i think Ghost is right,it looks like my cpu might be holding me back.The ones that did better mostly all had Athlon 64's,although i did beat some people with 64's that had X800 Pros and a couple that had more.My CPU is a XP3200 stock speed.Sometime down the road i'll upgrade to a better cpu,Thx for the help guys.

I think you should hit at least 60k on a stock XL.
I don't know why your 05 score is that low seeing how 05 is way more GPU basedd, I guess the CPU still plays an effect.
